These are real deal work boots. They well made with top grade materials. The wool material is probably not as warm as other brands high tech insulation but with proper liners and socks these boots will be warm enough. They required a breaking in period. But are now very comfortable. I fully expect with proper care (cleaning and moisturizing) these boots will last quite a long time.

These are well made shoes, no doubt. I have no reservations except about the laces. For some inexplicable reason Redwing includes too short laces (about 46"). There is not enough to tie a knot at the top. Odd, right? I had to go to buy some 54" laces (by Chippewah) which are perfect. Plus, the new laces are round and a matching brown, not the flat black sneaker-style the shoes came with. Still - five stars for the shoes.

If you love Red Wing Shoes and love the Heritage boots, and if you have the determination and willpower to withstand two weeks worth of pain before the leather fully breaks in, then please have no doubt when you see the recommendations to order ONE size smaller on this pair of boots! I am sincerely giving my full recommendation. I absolutely love these boots for their looks, quality, comfort, and the fact that these were made in the US of A! I bought a pair first, and got my two brothers to each buy one for themselves, because these boots are just too darn stylish. Man up, get the right size, and look fly.

Awesome pair of boots. I wouldn't walk on ice every day with these soles but everything else is great from snow to mud to rain. They're tough, look great and kick ass.

I can't decide if these or my Wolverine 1000 Mile boots are my favorites. They both have great style and both garner compliments. These are probably more durable, have a more versatile sole you can wear in the rain, have rugged good looks, and are a little less dressy. On the other hand, the leather isn't as soft and pliable, took a little longer to break in, and I don't think they go well with a suit. Just get both, and be happy!

I can't get 'em to fit right. Not having a cushioned insole has been problematic for me. The 10.5 fit well but I need cushion. So I bought the 11 and just can't find an insole to fit comfortably. Still have heel slip after 3 months. Mine are definitely broken in, I have abused them at work. I'm a turf manager so I'm on grass a lot, in water, on my feet all day. These things look great and I'm a huge wedge sole fan because dirt scrapes right off but I feel I wasted my money. I just can't get comfortable in these things, they hurt my feet, and heel slip won't stop, and I'm even now using Red Wing heat moldable insoles.

I see a lot of great reviews here. Unfortunately, my experience has been less satisfactory. First off, I've owned boots from Blundstone, Cole Haan, Sorel, and others. From a comfort perspective, these boots are simply awful. Even after 8 months of break-in, they are brutally uncomfortable. In an age where Cole Haan is innovating and making boots that feel comfortable right out of the box, this just doesn't cut it. Especially at such a premium price. I live in NYC and after just one winter, they've required resoling and have scuffs all over them. Sure, the uppers look like they could last a hundred years, but what good is that if they're so uncomfortable and look so beat up so quickly? Sorry, I can't recommend these.

These are absolutely great boots! The only problem is that they come with shoelaces that just aren't long enough!

Great looking boots. The more your wear them the better they look. I am glad I took zappos review advice and went half size smaller.

6" Moc Toe Lug Posted: 2/20/15
Reviewer: Dennis H from Northern California
Overall: Rated:4 stars! Comfort: Rated:4 stars! Style: Rated:4 stars!

Purchased size 10 EE. My normal shoe size is 10 1/2. This 10 is a generous fit, which allows for the use of added insoles (I use Superfeet Carbon)and a substantial sock (Wigwam Merino Light Hiker). Without the insole, the arch support is too flat for my foot. And without the insole and a thinner sock, they would be loose. I rated 4 stars because of the high price for an unlined boot. That said, the construction is first class, as is the leather quality. True Goodyear welted build. Be prepared for a boot with some weight and a rigid Vibram sole. Break in is what you would expect for a boot of this type (stiff at first but not intrusive). This is rather unique model, the only Red Wing Heritage with a full Vibram lug sole that is available in wide widths. I wish Red Wing made this model in other colors! Overall, I find them to be quite comfortable (with the insole) and am definitely satisfied with the purchase.

First of all these are the best boots that I have ever owned. They may be a little pricey, but when it comes to handmade, I will gladly pay extra. Also, I am now a life long Zappos customer after they completely went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of and happy. I had ordered a size too big, which is quite common with Red Wings. I tried to make them work with bigger socks and what not, but I just was not feeling it. I let Zappos know, and before we were done with our conversation, I already had a new pair in the correct size being overnighted to my house. How rad is that? Needless to say I let everyone know about my experience, and from now on will only get my boots from Zappos. Good on you Zappos! Seriously this is the best customer service experience that I have ever had!

Great boot,great look, and well worth the price. My husband loved them. The only thing is that you have to go down 1 full size. My husband wears a 10 1/2 I ordered a 10 but they were too big, I called Zappos & they shipped my order next day delivery. Zappos was great with the return & with overnight shipping. Zappos also has excellent customer service.

If you commit to wearing these boots regularly for a few weeks, you will find it difficult to choose to wear anything else. After wearing them all day on the job it's still a shame to have to take them off at night. Buy a pair now!

These boots are hard to break in. I am a perfect fit for Allen Edmonds 9.5 E (wide). I wear these boots with smart wool socks in a 9.5 regular and they fit really well. If you live in a cold climate, get good warm socks. These boots are not warm and you will appreciate them more if your feet are not freezing. Quality is superlative.

These are awesome quality boots. I have narrow feet, and ordered one full size down from my usual size. Perfect fit, and gets even better as the boots break in.

These boots should come with a timber claim and an axe. Sadly, I have no business owning a pair of these boots. As soon as I unboxed them, I realized that my life was a wasted opportunity, and I lacked the construction background, or ranch, or metal shop, or other manly profession to be worthy of these workhorses. These boots are for every guy in every truck commercial. But they are comfortable, stylish, and tough as nails. If you can pull it off, these are some amazing pieces of craftsmanship.

I own three pairs of Red Wings, and bought these because my Iron Rangers don't have any traction in snow. The Beckmans are great looking boots, and grip well in slippery conditions. But boy do they take a long time to break in. I've had these about 4 weeks, and only in the last few days are they comfortable. One trick I got from a Red Wing store salesman: Take a wooden broom stick and work it up inside the boot to stretch out the leather. That helped. You'll have to be patient. But I expect I'll have these for years so the initial discomfort probably is worth it. As others recommend, buy at least a half size down.

My first pair of Red Wing boots lasted me 17 years and counting. This pair is a little dressier, but seems to have the same great construction. The best part about Red Wing is the customer service even a decade after the boots are purchased. Takes a few wears to break-in but they are very comfortable now.

I have had these boots for 8 months. I didn't wear them much at first. They are heavy but they look great with jeans and probably kakis. They are very good quality and stylish. My sister agreed. If they were less pricey I would buy another pair. Also wish they came in a charcoal gray.

Let me start here...in terms of quality, you get what you pay for...incredible leather which is going to last for long long time. Now be careful about sizing. I tried mostly all the styles available at Zappos...and surprisingly they vary so much in sizing depend upon style...regular black one is a whole 1 size down while; for 1907 it was true to size and others vary too. Be ready to order multiple sizes in style you want to get the best fit...this is my first pair of Red Wings and no need to say that now on I am not going to buy any other boots than Red Wing.

I had to return this boot like 3 times because they all had flaws that were not acceptable. I am not impressed with the quality control. So eventually I gave up with this shoe. Im just gonna stick with clarks desert boot.
